IWM – Culture Under Attack

Qwerk recently completed installation of Culture Under Attack at the Imperial War Museum, London. Parts of the exhibition focus on how the Imperial War Museum made decision about protecting its artefacts during the Second World War, priority categories were created and just 281 works of art and 305 albums of photographs were evacuated, less than one per cent of the museum’s entire collection.

Fabrics that were used underwent extensive testing to understand the correct balance between transparency and print legibility along with the ability to seam and hem.

An existing structure was adapted to include the split flap display. The exhibition features complex design with layered construction, integrated lighting and showcases. Project completed as per initial programme and budget.
